There is so much that I enjoy about my job. If there is one thing that I love the most (which I see in the classroom frontier as well) is seeing the person on the first day, and then noticing all the changes that happen after the training. The changes happen so quickly, so rapidly, and they bring out so much of that individual.
Charles Qabazard – Instructor, Sales and Marketing

At Ashton, we combine online classrooms with live webinar sessions, which is a great way to introduce more interactions to the class, while still allowing flexible learning environment.
